18A:22-37. If the voters reject any of the items submitted at the annual April school election, the board of education shall deliver the proposed school budget pursuant to section 5 of P.L.1996, c.138 (C.18A:7F-5) to the governing body of the municipality, or of each of the municipalities included in the district within two days thereafter. The governing body of the municipality, or of each of the municipalities, included in the district shall, after consultation with the board, and by May 19, determine the amount which, in the judgment of the body or bodies, is necessary to be appropriated for each item appearing in the budget, pursuant to section 5 of P.L.1996, c.138 (C.18A:7F-5) and certify to the county board of taxation the totals of the amount so determined to be necessary for each of the following:

a. General fund expenses of schools; or

b. Appropriations to capital reserve account.

Within 15 days after the governing body of the municipality or of each of the municipalities included in the district shall make the certification to the county board of taxation, the board of education shall notify the governing body or bodies if it intends to appeal to the commissioner pursuant to section 5 of P.L.1996, c.138 (C.18A:7F-5) the amount which the body or bodies determined to be necessary to be appropriated for each item appearing in the proposed school budget.

Notwithstanding the provisions of this section to the contrary, whenever the Commissioner of Education changes the annual school election date pursuant to section 1 of P.L.1995, c.278 (C.19:60-1), the commissioner shall change the deadline set forth in this section by which date the governing body of the municipality or of each of the municipalities included in the district is required to determine the amount necessary to be appropriated for each item appearing in the budget, and certify to the county board of taxation the totals of the amount so determined. The commissioner in changing the deadline shall ensure that the number of calendar days from the changed date of the annual school election to the deadline is no less than the number of calendar days from the third Tuesday of April to May 19 of that calendar year.
